The popular image of stand-up nowadays is of arena tours, massive-selling DVDs and appearances on TV panel shows. But Stewart Lee wants to wrest what is known as “alternative comedy” away from the pejorative backwater where it’s been languishing. In truth, that means a series of lower-profile – though very funny – comedians on stage at the Stand in Edinburgh.
Henning Wehn, Isy Suttie, Boothby Graffoe, David Kay, David O’Doherty and Glenn Wool are in the line-up – and the conversations with Lee are bite-sized gems.
Stewart Lee curates a series of stand-up nights featuring alternative comedians, beginning with performances by Henning Wehn and Isy Suttie.
